We lost a great friend this week.  Our Talk on the Wildside host - retired Forest Ecology instructor from Itasca Community College - Harry Hutchins.  Tune in on Monday March 15th for Mixtape with Heidi Holtan at 2 and 10pm.  You'll hear music Harry loved and music that connects us to nature, put together by the listeners of KAXE/KBXE.

Joel wrote to John about snow depth and temperatures as he cross referenced this year's averages with his many years of data.  He also wondered why some branches seem lower now than in the summer. 

  The kids at Pike Lake School have been watching their trail cams and noticing a wolf as well as many other interesting things.

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Phenology Talkbacks are an opportunity for us to hear what you are noticing outside.  This week we received reports from several listeners, the students at North Shore Community School, and Axel sent a note from Memphis. 

This week's emails included questions about voles and shrews, woodpeckers, and snow-nados. John also heard from a fan.   

The North Shore Elementary School report includes a 10 point buck and the polar vortex.

And Axel left a quick audio message from Memphis....
